General NRL 2018 Round 5 - General Discussion

Both teams looking mid table/ lower half of the 8 at the moment
The start of the season usually has a few upsets or teams have inconsistent results. Usually the cream rises to the top. A bit early to judge at the moment to see if some of these teams are over hyped (Easts), or on older legs and at the end of a good run (Sharks, Storm, Cowboys) and can't turn it around. We could be in for a changing of the guard so to speak.

The Sharks are a little spoilt for choice at fullback and weren't sure how they should line up. Might have been a blessing in disguise with Moylan out for a little bit and move to a new halves combo. This might be their best configuration with Moylan at full back, holmes back on the wing, Hodgkinson and Townsend in the halves. Dugan can come back in at centre.

Gee who would have thought this Roosters side would get dealt to so convincingly last week then show up looking good this week.

Funny old game.

Our mob would kill this Sharks side.

The Sharks have had a tough start to the season. A lot of teams have been inconsistent. Funny old game alright one of the most consistent is the inconsistent Warriors.

At least we will know what we will get in the next game with the Dragons. Have enjoyed watching their two halves work. The Bulldogs are probably wishing they didn't spend up and kept graham, he's getting the better of that trade at the moment.

Graham is looking like the Tohu Harris of their side...a game changer...they recon the way he talks has the Pack constantly fired up.

If it is like for like then Blairs our new motivator up front aye so more like Graham in personality, with Tohu Harris bringing a game akin to SBW running wide

Don't really care about who wins, but secretly hoping that Dragons get the points so we get a 1st vs 2nd place blockbuster in 2 weeks time and we can go outright first in front of a full house...
How good would that be ?

The year the Warriors solve the Dragons problem.

We could still have that block buster if the Dragons lose once ( like now) and we meet them with us at top of table 1 v 2.

Not as gratifying as knocking them down ourselves tho hey ...ah the imaginary games you play in the minds eye should all the planets align...

me too, though a close lose for the Dragons still sees a 1st v 2nd match up next week :) and we can be outright first for at least two weeks then
